If you have a piece of work in relief which is broken, or with a small part missing and you want to repair it without having to re-fire, a very good and strong way to do this is to mix carpenters’ glue with cement. It can be used to fill up spaces or join pieces. Lay it on to the parts that have to joined, hold them together until they dry, then file down any rough edges. These parts can then be painted with industrial emulsion colors.
